agryfp

Andrew Gryf Paterson (SCO/FI/LV) - 'Artist-organiser', cultural producer, educator and independent researcher. He specialises exploring connections between art, digital culture and science, cultural activism, ecological and sustainability movements, along with cultural heritage and collaborative networks. Originally from Scotland, Paterson has been most active in the past 14 years in the Baltic Sea region, based for most of the time in Helsinki, Finland. He works across the fields of media/ network/ environmental arts and activism, pursuing a participatory practice through workshops, performative events, and storytelling. Strengths lie in hybridity, communications, organisation and network arts: the ability to bring together and involve people in creative, collaborative exploration, developing temporary communities, gathering unexpected elements and components as new spaces of/for cultural activity. What is left behind as social, digital, material and ephemeral residue of 'being t/here' has been a consistent concern. Archived more or less here. http://agryfp.info | agryfp -at- protonmail.com | FB/Twitter/social id: @agryfp | archive.org member since 11.2015 | CV-resume: https://archive.org/details/agryfp-cv-resume
